Sophie Standing’s Colorful Collage Endangered Animals

Facebook

England-born and living in Kenya, textile artist Sophie Standing embroiders intense portraits of the African wildlife around her. At the beginning of her career, she specialized in life drawing which she utilizes in these threaded “studies” on canvas.  The influence of 19th century art can also be found in Standing’s work. She has an extensive collection of decorative fabrics from her travels all over the world, making her colorful ‘collages’ of flora and fauna a personal story.

  2. Embroiderers?!!! Wow! I was impressed when I thought it was paint, but that this is embroidered is truly amazing!
    I’ll absolutely be sharing this with some of my stitching friends!
